Alex Gray, SHS instructor and CTE coordinator for the Lake Pend Oreille School District, was one of the initial organizers of the roadshow when it came to SHS in 2016. The idea, Gray said at the time, had come up during a conversation on an airplane. The goal was to bring hands-on experiences to the students, while also giving them an opportunity to meet with some of the instructors and students in the CTE programs. Since its inception, the roadshow has expanded to include new technology each year, such as the virtual reality painting.

 

"I think this is an awesome opportunity for our kids," Gray said as he looked around at the bustle of activity in the gymnasium on Friday. "And hats off to Malia Meschko, who put this whole thing together---it would not be possible without her."
